Phoenix and Tucson Homeowners Can Get Solar Electricity over the Internet with a Firm Online Quote at Sungevity.com

OAKLAND, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Solar energy is coming to the Valley in a whole new way for homeowners looking to save money on their electricity bills. Today, getting a solar power system for the home is just about as easy as purchasing a book on Amazon, and is more affordable than ever before. Sungevity, the Oakland-based company that’s behind the national campaign to get solar on the White House, has “virtually” arrived in Phoenix and Tucson to roll-out its one-of-a-kind online solar program.

“The online approach is an ideal medium for consumers who are thinking about – but never wanted to be hassled with – the planning of home solar power. Sungevity makes it as easy as a click-of-the-mouse to secure the best lease for solar energy in the market.”

In three easy steps, consumers can log onto Sungevity.com, receive a firm “iQuote,” see what the solar panels will look like on their roof using a mash-up of satellite and aerial imagery, sign a contract using electronic signatures and schedule an installation – all paid for with a no-money-down lease.

By using solar energy, Sungevity estimates that most homeowners can save 15% off their electricity bills from day one and have a new residential solar panel system on their roofs, giving owners the satisfaction of using clean energy technology. Sungevity pioneered the ability to accurately engineer and design a solar system for the home without making a site visit. The Sungevity approach uses satellite and aerial photos to size and design the solar system within 24 hours. Solar consultants from Sungevity are available to speak to potential customers from 8a – 8p, seven days a week on freephone 866.SUN4ALL. Finally, local Sungevity partners then perform the installation.

“The time is right to bring the simple, pain-free approach to getting solar panels on your home in the greater Phoenix and Tucson areas,” said Sungevity Founder Danny Kennedy. “The online approach is an ideal medium for consumers who are thinking about – but never wanted to be hassled with – the planning of home solar power. Sungevity makes it as easy as a click-of-the-mouse to secure the best lease for solar energy in the market.”

Sungevity processes all the paperwork and takes all the hassle out of going solar, with an operating lease that includes a performance guarantee for the system plus complete maintenance including cleaning and insurance. In the Phoenix area leases will be for the shortest duration in the industry, which is a ten-year term; and in Tucson, they are 20 years to match the rebate program there. Moreover, Sungevity will soon be offering it’s hassle-free iQuote service online in a Spanish-language format designed to meet the needs of Hispanic homeowners in the Valley.

    I’d like to get ahold of Eric Wasson our former Tucson salesman we were working with last June. Mide Waid is the customer who should get credit for any sale. I believe Eric was Mike’s salesman. We had gone instead with Solarplus, but the deal fell through when the solar plus salesman failed to timely submit the paper work before TEP ran out of money. If I’ve remembered Eric’s name correctly, could you please have him send me an email. If I am incorrect, or if Eric is no longer with the company, could you have a sales rep contact me. My husband’s name is Kevin. If we are in your records it is most likely as Kevin and Verla O’Donovan. Thanks.

    1. Hi Verla. I passed your message along to Eric, so you should be hearing from him shortly 🙂
